Welcome to the 2018 Scholarship Application!

During five-night institutes on location in Colonial Williamsburg, 25 participants and a Master Teacher engage in an interdisciplinary approach to teaching social studies with American history as the focus. Teachers have the opportunity to exchange ideas with historians, meet character interpreters, participate in simulations, and become part of the story. Throughout each day, teachers work collaboratively with Colonial Williamsburg staff and a Master Teacher to examine interactive teaching techniques and develop instructional materials that bring history to life in the classroom.

New this year, we are offering three-night seminars in addition to our five-night summer institutes. Teachers will participate in themed programming, and engage with fellow educators, historians, and characters.


Each scholarship includes:

• Admission to all program activities

• Room (double occupancy)

• Most meals

• Special access to the Teacher Institute portion of our Education Resource Library

• Most scholarships include full airfare and ground transportation to Williamsburg.  Travel arrangements will be confirmed at the time of scholarship acceptance.


For your application to be considered complete, you must respond fully to the following portions: personal information, questions, agreement to complete surveys that will be used to evaluate the program, and confirmation that you will be teaching during the 2018-2019 school year.
